NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- At the recent sixth annual Sharkie Awards, which recognize outstanding and effective video presentations, Pacific Life Insurance Company was honored for its online video, "LIFT Retirement Savings with the Help of a Variable Annuity." Too few investors realize how powerful variable annuities can be for retirement, and too few financial advisors have access to engaging presentations about core variable annuity benefits. Pacific Life's video was created to address both issues. Using cloud-based technology from Brainshark, which hosts the Sharkie awards, the video provides financial advisors with an informative, easy-to-understand variable annuity presentation, available 24/7. The video won first place in the Sharkie Awards "Marketing Presentation" category.
Brainshark is a leader in cloud-based business presentations and says that more than 400 entries were submitted for this year's awards. Judging was based on presentation quality, as well as each entry's effective use of Brainshark's technology, which enables users to create dynamic online and mobile video presentations.
"At Pacific Life, we're focused on helping financial advisors offer sophisticated, exceptional service to clients. Web-based presentations like the 'LIFT' video are powerful tools in that regard. Advisors can access them anywhere at any time, they're engaging, and they explain financial concepts in a quick and easy-to-understand way. We're excited about the many Web-based presentations we've already developed, and pleased that Brainshark, has honored us with this year's Sharkie Award for best marketing presentation," says Christine Tucker, vice president of marketing for Pacific Life's Retirement Services Division.
The "LIFT Retirement Savings with the Help of a Variable Annuity" video is available for viewing at www.PacificLife.com. On the website, search for "Lift Retirement Savings." The site has additional information about retirement savings strategies, including variable annuities, fixed annuities, and mutual funds.
